It’s time, dear reader, to erase all the mind-filth of the week with this stellar collection of spacey psyched-out rock. Pioneering the ‘reconditioning’ process is The New Highway Hymnal (Vanya Records): they’re kicking off a new tour and their crashing loops of groovy bass and trance-bred lyrics will get deep inside your grey matter. While the NHH crew operates, the gentlemen of CreaturoS (pRIMORDIAL sOUNDS) would kindly place the 4-point restraints and pump the acid drip – they’ve got the catchiest, punchiest, surliest brain-washing garage around and they’re not afraid to use it. Touring Richmond janglers First Creature monitor your vitals with their gloomy melodic tunes, just as the fellows of Providence’s Atlantic Thrills use their bluesy 60s foot-stompers to assess your extremities. And the sights you’ll be viewing during this beautifully twisted check-up? None other than the mind-expanding desert visions of the Lysergic Light Factory. Get yourself out to O’Brien’s and let these bands work their magic on your tired mess of a brain.
